The Sky Is The Limit
Balancing efficiency, durability and innovation, the Intermatic NightFox™ Pro Series offers municipalities, utilities and co-ops a new level of customization with photocontrols.
Long Lasting Accuracy
Users can look forward to having the essential benefits of photocontrols, specifically long-lasting and accurate sensing of dusk and dawn, while keeping precise control of outdoor light fixtures.
What’s more, the Customizing Specifier (LED), Select (EK) and Standard (ELC) grade photocontrols within the NightFox™ Pro Series allow municipalities to meet a wide variety of application needs and budgets without sacrifice.
NightFox™ Pro Series Photocontrols are designed to withstand the test of time:
In-rush currents can impact electronic ballasts and LED drivers differently than traditional loads.
In practice, electronic ballasts display a much higher in-rush current with LED drivers than what’s produced from switching traditional tungsten and magnetic ballast loads.
Normally, short in-rush currents can peak as high as 100 times the nominal operating levels – significantly decreasing the life of a switching device. However, the NightFox™ Pro Series Photocontrols have been tested at full load with NEMA 410 in-rush load capabilities.
Using zero-cross switching technology, the NightFox™ Pro Series helps minimize the impact of high in-rush currents. The zero-cross is the rapid point where there is no voltage present. In AC power supply, where the voltage is represented by a sine wave, this usually occurs twice during each cycle.
Decreased relay currents occurs when zero crossing technology monitors the AC supply voltage curve and timing the switching to happen as the AC voltage level passes through zero volts.

NightFox™ Pro Series Photocontrols offer protection to typical, enhanced, or extreme electrical transients as laid out by ANSI C136.2.
Lab testing to ANSI C136.2 requirements confirms that, in addition to using the proper MOV component, other relevant electronic components and designs adequately meet typical, enhanced or extreme levels as labeled by ANSI C136.2.
Intermatic’s relays are powered to switch only at the zero-crossing point – extending relay contact life without depending on the rated contact current or the quality of the light fixture manufacturer.
